These sound an awful lot like the bzr-push and bzr-pull scripts in the
bzrtools.  bzr-push can also be used as a plugin, though I didn't do
that for bzr-pull, because I considered it obsolete.

If your rsync-push script only uploads source files and control files,
it's an improvement on mine.

In any case, the x-pull-data and x-push-data files are already intended
for use with rsync.

What would not allow "bzr push"?
